Yes to Kovalchuk and let Radulov and Kostitsyn stew
I know it's semantics but I think you are being overly generous with the word star when it comes to KHL wonder boy / NHL everyman Radulov & Andrei Kostitsyn. They are not straws that stir the drink in Nashville.
Kovalchuk actually DOES play D and can do it well.
Ovechkin not being used a lot by Hunter was a bit of a shock but to Ovie's credit he didn't cause problems and said that winning was paramount. Now Hunter not playing Ovie and them losing would have created a huge outcry of outrage. It happens like that in everything in life. It's always OK as long as things work "out".
